Shaw University Bulletin Alumni Notes Miss Morgan Gives Account of Experiences In Nigeria In our May 1962 bulletin we car- ried a brief article concerning the appointment of Miss Doris Lavonne Morgan into the United States Peace Corps as a home economics instructor at the University of Ni- geria, Nsukka, Nigeria, West Af- rica. Here are some excerpts from information sent by Miss Morgan which might inspire other Shaw University graduates to serve in this area. "Nsukka in daylight was a plea- sant surprise of red dusty table- land, surrounded by a wealth of hills grassy green now that the rainy season has come. At the Uni- versity of Nigeria, Nsukka, there are about 20 buildings with more in the making, including a stadium having a seating capacity of 30,000. In addition there is the ciuster of faculty houses and apartments in their myriad pastel colors. Presently I am conducting a training program for houseboys of six weeks duration. The term house boy is Nigeria's equivalent for domestic employee. I have 36 students, ranging from 16-40 years of age. Their eagerness is attested by the fact that many of them walk seven to eight miles to attend classes. One simply doesn't see the wild beast of prey and warriors with spear in hand depicted in Hollywood films. To Nigerians who have done so much to make my stay here a pleasant one, I owe at least this much — the truth." Dr. Grainger Browning, class of '39 has joined the faculty of Hamp- ton Institute, Hampton, Virginia as associate professor of social sciences. Dr. and Mrs. J. E. Brown of Cleveland, Ohio celebrated their Fiftieth Wedding Anniversary on October 3, 1962. We wish for you many more years of happiness together !

Shaw University Bulletin 11 Shaw Alumni Gear For Action Assembled on the campus of Shaw University August 25, members of the Executive Board of the Shaw National Alumni Association and other interested alumni discussed and planned to mobilize the forces of the alumni to join with the administration and other elements of the University family to discuss and plan for a new forward move- ment for Shaw University. Enthusiastic alumni from New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Washington and various sections of North Carolina were represented. Among the persons present were Dr. Nelson Harris, Interim Presi- dent of Shaw University (succeeding Dr. William R. Strassner), Dr. P. H. Johnson, Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Trustee Board, and representative of the State Baptist Convention, Dr. 0. L. Sherrill, Executive Secretary of the General Baptist State Convention of North Carolina, Mr. Milton Daniels, President of the Shaw National Alumni Association, and Mr. Willie Morgan, President of the Eastern Regional Alumni Organization (just returned from Russia (Moscow) where he reported on a special scientific study of which he is engaged.) Other persons present were officers of the National Alumni Associa- tion, Presidents of local chapters and clubs, Members of the Executive Committee of the National Alumni Association and other interested alumni. After hearing reports of transition in the Administration, present indebtedness of the Institution and need for repairs and plans for the Institutions advancement, officers and the alumni present set in motion machinery for the alumni and the administration to gear for action. As an indication of the interest of the group, more than $500.00 was collected and turned over to Dr. Harris for Shaw. It was observed that the current indebtedness of the Institution and needs for immediate repairs on some of the buildings were of paramount concern and should be the first order of business. A coordinating committee was set up to work out the details for a special financial project with Founder's Day, November 16, as the target date. The committee is also to consider plans for a long range program lasting for one or three years. It is to be observed that 1965 (three years from now) will be the 100th anniversary of the Institu- tion. The coordinating committee appointed a smaller sub-committee to work out careful details for both the immediate and long term pro- gram. The detailed plans will be announced shortly. Among the needs emphasized was the very great importance of raising a considerable sum of money within the next 60 days, culmin- ating at Founder's Day, November 16. Every alumnus is urged to make a gift to the University on or before Founder's Day, representing the limit of his ability to give. Shaw's future depends upon our giving NOW. 12 Shaw University Bulletin Placement Of Graduates Approximately 97 per cent of the 1962 graduates interested in teaching have been placed.

Shaw University Bulletin 23 In Memoriam As we go to press it becomes our sad task to pay tribute to Mrs. Ada Rice Jarnagin, a loyal, faithful and efficient member of the Shaw Family who slept away on Saturday, September 15, 1962 at the Wake Memorial Hospital wh.re she had been a patient for several days. Mrs. Jarnagin, general secre- tary in the office of the President, was laid to rest Wednesday, Septem- ber 19, 1962 in the Na- tional Cemetery following services in Shaw University Church and the First Baptist Church in Raleigh on Tuesday. The deceased was characterized as a dynamic leader who always responded with boundless energy and enthusiasm when called upon to serve. The mammoth tasks which she accomplished were expressed through her affiliations with such organizations as follows : She was a member of the First Baptist Church, Past Secretary of the North Carolina Council of Church Women, Past President of the Sojourner Truth Branch YWCA and currently Chairman of Parent- Education Committee and member of Public Affairs Committee, Executive Vice President, National Con- gress of Colored Parents and Teachers; Secretary of Joint Intergroup Relations Committee of the Congress of Parents and Teachers ; Secretary, North Carolina Adult Education Association; a member of the North Carolina Child Welfare Advisory Board, State Depart- ment of Public Welfare; North Carolina Family Life Council; North Carolina Health Council; North Caro- lina Citizens Committee for Better Schools; Executive Secretary of the North Carolina Congress of Colored Parents and Teachers, Incorporated; and a member of the Governor's Commission to Study the Cause and Control of Cancer in North Carolina.
